Be sure to visit the cow barn and search out the calves who will wrestle for your attention and the mid-afternoon sheep briefing and discover that sheep are very happy to eat their bran food from your hand or wherever else you elect to put it. The docents do a great job in the farm managers house and don't miss... More

Visiting the home of the past farm manager gives an insight into how advanced their domestic and production systems were for there day. The staff in the house are a fund of knowledge. You can get really close to the Jersey cows as are number of them are kept indoors during the day. (Don't get to close to the back... More

We just loved going to the farm and the museum. My 7 year old daughter walked the trails and answered questions and so she became a junior ranger complete with a badge and ceremony - delightful. At the farm we joined in on all kinds of crafts and activities over a few days and would have enjoyed even more.

An amazing history of the land and farm in the museum. You can see the Jersey herd in the corral outside. On the weekend this month of October, they give visitors a horse and wagon ride on the farm.

Toured Billings for the first time this weekend during their Harvest Weekend. There were countless fall themed activities for the whole family on top of the being able to tour the spectacular grounds. The animals were beautiful and obviously very well taken care off. The staff were gracious and happily answered questions that visitors had. Billings is a must see... More

This is a great place to learn abut farming in VT in the 1800's, you can get up close to most of the animals, view the house where the farm manager lived, and get your questions answered by the knowledgeable docents. Families with children who were there really seemed to be having a good time and we enjoyed hearing about... More
